Stay Tuned: End of the American Century (with George Packer)

Show Notes

On this episode of Stay Tuned, “End of the American Century,” host Preet Bharara answers your questions about:

— The President’s authority to declassify sensitive information, like the image Trump tweeted of Iran’s Imam Khomeini Space Center after an explosion

— Why the adage “never ask a question you don’t know the answer to” applies in the courtroom, but not necessarily in the podcast studio

— The trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, charged with plotting the 9/11 terrorist attacks

George Packer, author and staff writer at The Atlantic, joins Preet for a wide-ranging conversation about his new book, “Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century” and the lessons we can glean from the life of the storied diplomat.

Bonus clips from the interview are available for members of the CAFE Insider community
